Newsbusters reports with video:
CNN’s Paul Begala, in response to Friday’s announcement that former Maryland governor Michael Steele had been named Republican National Committee chairman, said, “The real leader of the Republican Party in America today is a corpulent drug addict with an AM radio talk show, Rush Limbaugh.”
And what does that make the leader of the democratic party, I wonder? Here’s an interesting and quite funny video of some prominent democrats, including Barack Obama, falling all over themselves to tell us all about their drug use.
Mr. Begala also added:
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is “very bitter, and divisive,” “Obama is stylistically much more like Reagan,” and that George W. Bush was a “spectacularly lazy president.”
And how bitter and divisive is that?
But at least Gov. Sarah Palin and George W. Bush are public figures and in politics. Rush Limbaugh is a private citizen practicing his profession, the one he has had now for about 20 years, and isn’t it a bit of a stretch to elevate him to the level of the “leader of the republican party?”
